Scientific Name: Cercis occidentalis

The Redbud, Cercis occidentalis, is a charming native tree species that blooms with vibrant pink flowers in early spring, adding a splash of color to the Huntington Beach landscape. These small deciduous trees have heart-shaped leaves and attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies with their showy blossoms. Redbuds are well-suited to the Mediterranean climate of the region and can be found in riparian areas, canyons, and residential gardens. Their flowers give way to flat, brown seed pods later in the season, providing a food source for wildlife.
